Group health coverage simply refers to a single plan, issued to a group belonging to a common organization that covers all appropriate employees and sometimes their dependents as well. The employer decides a premium price based on the risk factors combining the entire group. By offering corporate health insurance, an employer tends to help its employees for their medical needs.  In India, being an endemic phenomenon, every single organization emphasizes on including medical insurance as a part and parcel of its employees’ benefits.

At the time of switching, employees do compare all that they were offered by the previous organization and all that is being given by the new one.

Boosts Productivity: With a group health insurance plan, an employee thinks that the employer is taking care of their health along with the family. This in turn offers mental peace which further leads to increased productivity. Overall, it benefits the employer substantially.

Added Health Coverage: Corporate health insurance works as an additional health coverage if the insured has an individual health plan already. This way, one can enjoy health coverage in an extended manner.

Ensures Job Satisfaction: Medical insurance plan offered by an organization ensures job satisfaction of the employees. This encourages the employees to stay with the organization for a longer period. They feel satisfied with the benefits that are being offered by the employer which retains them for a long time.
